Dolphins send Ajayi to Eagles for draft pick

  • Jay Ajayi Traded to the Eagles and Philadelphia is Going All-in for the Super Bowl

The Eagles saw him in the summer during the joint practices with the Dolphins and had to be impressed with Ajayi's hard-charging style between the tackles, his quick feet, and his ability to change direction.

The trade for Ajayi could prove crucial for the rest of this season, and by only trading a fourth-round pick, the team isn't mortgaging their future in an attempt to make a Super Bowl run. The 2016 Pro Bowler has 138 carries for 465 yards through seven games this season.

Ajayi has been dealing with a sore knee all season but played in Thursday's 40-0 loss to the Baltimore Ravens after being limited in practice all week. He also scored eight touchdowns. And when Gase said earlier that if players don't want to be here they won't be, I think we saw one player that didn't want to be here. The Eagles (7-1), with the best record in the National Football League, have the fifth-ranked run offense and have won six straight games. Wentz himself is a running threat, and there are also talented and underrated backs in Wendell Smallwood and Corey Clement. He managed just 51 yards on 23 carries and 26 yards on three receptions.


In a surprise move, the Fins dumped Ajayi in favor of a fourth-round pick, according to CBS4 news partner The Miami Herald.

The Dolphins have struggled on offense all season long, ranking dead last in both total yards (252.4 yards per game) and scoring (13.1 points per game).

They brought in former New England Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount late in free agency, a move that has paid mixed dividends for the team; he leads the team with 467 rushing yards this season.
